nosy boss
Not one I run into frequently, just every few months, but she will be a bully as usual.

How do I dodge her nosy questions?

What type of questions?
I work in a medical lab and had to have some blood tests done at work recently. The phlebotomist (also my workmate) asked what was wrong with me, I didn't feel like discussing my health issues with her so just ignored her (pretended I didn't hear her), she pushed by then asking if it was just a check-up. I said "Something like that."
So my advice is to ignore (pretend you didn't hear) or be suitably vague.

Ask her questions about her...

For example, if she asks "How was your weekend?", just say "How was yours?"

If she says "How come you drive that car?", ask her "What kind of cars do you like?"

If she says "Who does your hair?". Say, "Wow, you look stunning today. Who does your hair?"

See, you don't answer her question, and quickly start asking her questions. Make sure you do it with a smile on your face. Be pleasant. Hopefully after a while she'll bore of you.
